Musician, Teacher, and Researcher

Rachael Sanguinetti is a teacher, performer, and active music researcher. Rachael began her musical career at the age of 3 when she joined her church's choir. Since then she has enjoyed traveling the world performing and studying many different types of music. She has performed a variety of genres including opera, classical, jazz, broadway, pop, and country. Favorite performances include playing the role of "Kate Monster" in a production of Avenue Q in Vermont and performing opera scenes in a castle in Urbania, Italy.

She has been a full-time music teacher since 2015 when she graduated from Eastman School of Music. She is currently full-time music faculty at Allendale Columbia School in Rochester, NY; she is thrilled to be able to work with lower, middle and upper school students teaching both general music, ukulele, modern band, and chorus. 

She completed her Masters of Music in Music Education in 2018 at Ithaca College in their summer program. As a supplement to her masters work, she completed an independent project focused on research methods and is currently working on a research project related to the use of Popular Music techniques in classrooms across New York state. 

Outside of teaching and researching, Rachael can be found drinking coffee, reading, or spending time with her fiance, Shoghi and cat, Cecilia.
